I thought this stop on our way from Kumasi to Accra would be a bust but we asked when we arrived for a tour and the guy that helped us was awesome. I wish I could remember his name. He knew so much about the plants and trees in the area.

Heli wreck picture is painted here but it is not in reality. However, the garden is stunning. My favorite part is the cocoa garden, and nutmeg trees.
